Women have abortions due to “good nurturance” says pro-choicer

Pro-choice activist Ruth Cowan

“… Once left free to decide, most women decide to abort for reasons that have to do with their sense of good nurturance: for example, when they feel either that this is not a time when they can nurture a child properly or this is not the fetus that will grow into a child whom they can nurture properly.”
